  • Firefighters battle fast-moving Anaheim Hills brush fire

Firefighters worked hard to save homes but could not protect every structure as the fire raged out of control. The Canyon Fire 2 comes not long after another brush fire burned about 2,600 acres at the Anaheim-Corona border in late September.

Mandatory evacuations remained in place Tuesday.

Officials said at a Tuesday morning press conference that officials are evaluating the evacuation areas and may allow some people to return to their homes Tuesday evening. The smoke was so thick and high that it could be seen over Disneyland.

Authorities are closing roads and the highways in the area, however - including parts of the 91, 55, and 241 - so your route to or from the parks might be affected. There were no reports of injuries in that fire, but six homes and a trailer of a semi-truck were damaged, according to ABC 7 News.

The evacuation shelters and firefighters now have everything they need to combat the fire and aid those affected. Because of the high winds, the blaze grew immensely and traveled quickly.

At least 500 firefighters are reportedly battling the fierce flames and are going from house to house evacuating people. Instead, they turned their attention to making sure residents are out of harm's way. On Tuesday, authorities were looking to build containment lines on the eastern edge to keep the fire from spreading into the Cleveland National Forest. For Anaheim, it is 714-765-4333.

Anaheim police Sgt. Daron Wyatt says the fire remains a threat to about 3,500 Orange County homes overnight and neighbourhoods might not open until tomorrow. Residents should take note of the emergency hotlines.

He told concerned visitors to look at the resort's official Twitter feed - @DisneylandToday - for any further updates.
